WTF Disney go feed starving kids or something useful?!

 

They are making the new star wars movie you know, they are shutting down lucas not star wars.

I am well aware they are, thats why I added ('yes along side Lucas Films')

But still $4.04 billion to be allowed to make a few movies? 

I'd say thats stoopid..

They count on billions of dollars of profit from movies...  games are nothing comparing to this and it takes longer to make then movies. I think we will see much less SW games in the future... which is bad news for us, but good news for SWTOR:)

Edit. And considering that most of gaming companies will stay away from SW IP (it brings bad luck LOL) ...

dont forget the all the money from merchandising from toys and what not.  cant forget about merchandising

Im sure disney will get other developers to make star wars games, its not like they dont make games based on their other IPs.  Kingdom Hearts for instance.

Personally i am hoping that they will give license to the guys who made Jedi Knight 2, i believe Raven Software were behind that fantastic game, maybe we will finally see the next adventure of Kyle Katarn at some point in the future. :)

 

As for Lucas Arts, it's a shame really, but more because of nostalgia than anything else, it's been quite some time since they made a good PC game, and i am not just talking about Star Wars here, hell some of their best, legendary games had nothing to do with SW IP, games such as Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Sam & Max etc.

Nah, you've got it wrong.

What they bought (read: what they really wanted)  was the rights and everything that came with the I.P.

So they own the whole shebang.

Then they look at lucas arts and see that they are paying x amount of employees, with all the overhead that brings, and paying to keep that division afloat. They then come to the conclusion that they can still get video games made if they license the property and probably have less risk involved since whoever is licensing "Star Wars" has to pay them their fees and then has to hope they can make a good game.

In this way they don't have to pay salaries and fringe, don't have to pay rents, insurance, and whatever else you can think of, have less risk for their investment and get more star wars games made. Hopefully good games.

This is not to say that this isn't a damn shame. but they basically looked at what was going to make them more money in the long run with less risk.

And there it is.

Hopefully it opens up the Star Wars IP to more developers. Since they won't be protecting an in-house development team anymore.

It was redundant. Disney has their own gaming production facilities, mostly in India and Taiwan. They've never been real big on gaming except for little kids games.

WHo cares for Lucasarts when disney got a gold mine with SW movies in future. I hope they focus where it matters and forget about SW MMOS and other crap.

I think thats licensing Star Wars 1313.

http://kotaku.com/disney-shuts-down-lucasarts-468473749

The whole reason they did this was to license their property.

“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games,” read a statement issued by Lucasfilm. “As a result of this change, we’ve had layoffs across the organization.”

Nothing that was said in that article has me worried. If you look at what Lucas Arts was doing in the SW IP and other IPs was licensing them out to other developers and has been doing so for awhile now. The model that Disney has put forth is the exact same that was happening, so why keep redundant employees. Yes sure it is a kick in the pants and not something I like to see but it make business sense to eliminate the fat were you can.

Now where does this leave us; as someone already mentioned on the first page that R.I.P to the list of games LA produced and made from the ground up. This leaves them now open to have other developers to make sequels that LA was not willing to do, and not willing to let someone else have their hand in it.  This is one of the biggest reasons Xwing Vs Tie Fighter or any of it iterations has never seen the light of day again as LA didn't want to hand it off. SWG had the space concept in game prior to release but needed to get the go a head from LA in order to get that and it wasn't until how popular that game was in its initial run that LA was "reluctant" to give them a go ahead to do it as it was to close to how Xwing vs Tie Fighter was.

Lucas Arts has been its own worst enemy for a while now in the game department with some of their ideals.

Now I do have to mention the other side of what can happen in just licensing the IP is you get games like forces unleashed 2 that was hurried and not up to standards as the production company cut corners to get it out.

Darth Vader would get owned. How do you fight someone that can destroy an entire building? Hell even Cloud was hard pressed to kil him.

"Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"
